After a trip to MSU Moorhead on Sept. 17, Augustana plays two straight on the turf of Kirkeby-Over Stadium with Northern State on Sept. 24 and Sioux Falls on Oct. 1. Northern State has not visited Sioux Falls since the 2016 season while USF hasn't played in K-O since 2018.

Augustana then travels to Upper Iowa on Oct. 8. That is followed by another two-straight game at home. The annual Viking Days contest is set for Oct. 15 against Wayne State. The following week is the 50th annual Shrine Game with Minnesota State making its way to K-O Stadium.

The Vikings end the regular season with two out of three games on the road. AU travels to Winona State on Oct. 29 and Southwest Minnesota State on Nov. 12. The two road games sandwich the home finale against Minnesota Duluth on Nov. 5 which serves as Senior Day for Augustana.

All home games have a 1 p.m. start and are played in Kirkeby-Over Stadium, a home facility that Augustana has won 11-straight regular-season games in. Stay tuned to for ticket information.
